Davis’ transition from Lowell High School has been pretty smooth, and Dullea credits that to his attitude.
“Defensively it was a bigger adjustment for him because of the style we play. He’s a very coachable kid and he’s still learning. We’ll stop practice and he’s always willing to take criticism and advice,” said Dullea, whose team is off to a 6-0 start.
“The Prep can be demanding, school-wise, and that was obviously going to be an adjustment, but add one a whole new (basketball) system and a new coach. That was a lot of adjustment to go along with that. It’s really been a pretty smooth transition (for Davis) academically and athletically.”
